Copper sinks maintenance and care

Coppersinkcentral.com products are guaranteed to be manufactured with the highest quality standards and workmanship level. However, our customers need to understand that the products are made of copper - a metal that constantly reacts to external agents like water, oxygen, chemicals and more. Natural reaction to water and oxygen will maintain the beauty of the patina in an everlasting changing form - that is the beauty of copper. 

However, harsh chemicals could otherwise erase the patina, leaving the color of copper natural. As the copper has antibacterial and antimicrobial properties there is no need to clean it with harsh chemicals. Only clean it with a mild soap and water and it will maintain its patina and beautiful look. Foods and beverages with alcohol or other hard contents may affect slightly the look of your copper sink, therefore when these contents are in contact with your sink just avoid having them linger in the sink with a simple water flush. The patina is designed in a way to maintain the warmth look even after there are color reactions due to external agents.

You may want to wax your copper sinks in order to maintain its brightness and new look from time to time. Try natural bees wax as it will work best. If a spot or scratch appears on your sink, do not worry. Just do not wax your sink for a few weeks and it will regain its patina color. Just let the copper recover. Simply Amazing!!
